I am in full blown Christmas mode. I am ready to put up the tree, roast some chestnuts by an open fire, and spread all types of happiness any way I can. Thanks to the brilliant minds at OPI, I can spread my joy by having beautiful nails. This season OPI has launched 18 Limited Edition Holiday Nail Lacquers. Inspired by Mariah Carey, this holiday collection includes reds, burgundy, glitters and the amazing liquid sand collection. I received this collection to review and was excited to polish my nails!
*** Disclaimer I am not the perfect polish painter (say that 7 times fast) like my big sissy so bear with me. I am getting there though, so sorry in advance if you see some mistakes.***
In My Santa Suit is the perfect red for the holiday season. It is shiny and bold and really gives you that Christmas feeling. This color is amazingly shiny even without a top coat.
Cute Little Vixen is a sexy violet that will go great with anything outfit you are wearing this season.
All I Want For Christmas ( Is OPI) is just a basic red. Nothing to write Santa about, but if you are looking for a good red that you can wear all year this will be great for you.
Warm Me Up is one of the darker colors of the collection, but it is one of my favorites. This brown polish has a little hint of silver in it spice up a usually boring color.
Visions of Love is probably my favorite polish of all time. It is a rich burgundy that is very mature and sexy. It looks more of an Oxford Blood when you first put it on, but after it dries turns into that burgundy I ended up liking it so much that I wore it for the entire week.
Underneath The Mistletoe is a deep red with a kiss of sparkle it give you that extra umph that every outfit needs during the holiday season.
Sleigh Ride For Two is a savory plum polish that is absolutely gorgeous. This color is has a nice shimmer to it that has a nice subtle sparkle.
I Snow You Love Me is a super fun polish. It adds a little something extra to any polish that you want people to notice. I put it over Sleigh Ride For Two and loved the results. It was a little difficult to get the sequins to lay down so I suggest using a toothpick to get the sequins to lay down.
Ski Slope Sweetie is a lovely pearl polish. It reminds of the popular polish in the 90s cotton candy, but not as thick. You will definitely need to put more than one coat to get a really good I did two, but would put an extra just for good measure.
Wondrous Star is a funky polish. Funky in a good way it really adds some spunk to your nails while still giving you a glamorous gold shimmer.
If none these 10 polishes have caught your eye, stay tuned for the rest of the OPI Mariah Carey Limited Edition Holiday Nail Lacquers collection. This collection is available at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCP Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ulta.com for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
